(V1.0.1) CrossCountry HSTs: 40th Anniversary Pack

31st October 2022 1 By The GWRailfan

Hi, and thanks for downloading! This is my 6th “reskin” uploaded to ATS. I put that in quotation marks because it’s sort of half-reskin, half-patch.
This represents CrossCountry’s two Class 43 HST power cars which have been either repainted or named to celebrate their 40th year running with the CrossCountry franchise.

FEATURES:
– 43184 (ex 43384) in BR InterCity Executive livery
– 43366 with it’s “HST 40” nameplate
– 2 Quick Drive consists

REQUIREMENTS:
Payware:
Kuju European Loco/Assets Pack (https://store.steampowered.com/app/208300/Train_Simulator_European_Loco__Asset_Pack)
AP Class 43 (MTU)/Mk3 Enhancement Pack (https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/enhancements/locomotive/class_43_mtu-mk3_enhancement_pack)

Freeware:
MJW Class 43 Revamp Pack (https://www.major.wales/revamp-packs/class-43)

KNOWN ISSUES:
– 43184 has a small texturing bug – the number appears flipped where it shouldn’t be on one side. I did a poll in the ATS Facebook group asking whether people were bothered about this and the general response was no, so I hope you don’t mind too much.
– The text faces inwards instead of outwards on 43366’s nameplate. It’s very hard to notice unless you look very closely.

CHANGELOG:
V1.0: Initial release
V1.0.1: Fixed nameplate not appearing on 43366

CREDITS:
A huge thank you to andrewb for modelling 43366’s nameplate. This pack would not have been possible without his expertise in Blender!

I hope you enjoy this pack!
The GWRailfan and Andrew 🙂
